Aaron Gibson throws lifeline to Tyersal

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: West Riding County Amateur League round-up West Riding County Amateur League round-up

Tyersal eased their West Riding County Amateur League relegation fears with a 4-3 win at fellow Premier Division strugglers Halifax Irish.

Two goals from Aaron Gibson, supplemented by Jamie Shields and Jordan Haggard, sealed the points, which was a blow to Gareth Jones as he took his tally to 24 league goals for the season with a hat-trick for the Irishmen.

Campion climbed to second in the table, five points adrift of leaders Ovenden West Riding, after beating Huddersfield YMCA 3-2.

Usmaan Hussain, who was making his home debut aged 17, set Campion on their way with the opening goal but Steve McMann levelled for the visitors before the interval.

Two second-half goals from Omar Habeeb then edged Campion into a two-goal advantage before Darragh Sheeny netted a late consolation.

Steeton are up to sixth after also winning 3-2 at Littletown, with Daniel McNulty, Graham Holmes and Andy King, outscoring Robin Knight and Kaine Hall.

Defending champions Bay Athletic began their marathon run of 15 league games before the end of the season with a 1-0 success at Kirkburton courtesy of Nick Jagger’s goal.

Bottom side Hall Green United picked up only their second win of the season as they saw off fellow strugglers Lepton Highlanders 5-3.

Division One leaders Hunsworth suffered a rare setback as they lost for the first time away from home. Hosts Wakefield City, who still have a chance of taking runners-up spot, had Paul Scott and Ryan Barker on target in a 2-0 victory.

Ventus-Yeadon Celtic put three successive defeats behind them as they moved to within a point of second-placed Lower Hopton by thrashing Bay Athletic Reserves 6-1. A Paul Andrews treble was backed up by Adam Turner (2) and Ryan Firth.

Wibsey’s 17-year-old scoring sensation Danny O’Donnell netted all his side’s goals in a 4-3 win at bottom side Overthorpe SC.

Salts Reserves had only a Matt Bailey consolation goal to show for their efforts at home to an experienced Campion Reserves outfit, who had Paul Noble, Ben O’Melia and Chris Helliwell on target to win 3-1.

Dudley Hill Rangers became the league’s first team to complete their season as a 5-0 win against Golcar United Reserves clinched the Division Two title and promotion back to Division One after being demoted two seasons ago. Danny Softley (2), Alex Wooley, Chris Gibbons and Matt Knowles were the scorers.

Favourites to join Rangers in going up are either DRAM Community, who are currently second after winning 5-1 at Lower Hopton Reserves, or Thornes, who are just a point adrift in third place.
